3 of us stayed here for a week while we were attending a workshop in University of Florence. The staff were very warm and helpful to all our requests, no matter how small. We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel before check-in and change our room when it was not suitable for us. As we arrived in... More

Stayed here in July for a family wedding, had the usual drama and what-not with elderly relatives but the hotel staff were lovely and very helpful. The hotel itself is nice, slightly older style but fine. Beds are comfortable, showers are hot although a touch more pressure would be nice and the breakfast is fresh and tasty. Taxis can be...

My husband and I recently stayed at Orto de Medici for our 20th Anniversary trip based on the TripAdvisor reviews and also the excellent email communication from Francesco Bini, who answered our questions about the terrace rooms and which views/amenities were best. The location was perfect for us -- 10 to 15 minute walk from the train station. And everything... More

My husband and I and our 11yr old daughters stayed at this hotel for 3 days in early July 2015 and booked a prepaid rate online at the recommendation of a friend and online reviews. Our trip to Florence was one stop of 5 countries and 13 cities on a once in a lifetime trip. This hotel was phenomenal. Our... More

Our family group of 12 stayed here for 3 days in the Summer 2015 and had a wonderful time. It's a couple blocks from the Accademia and about 3 or 4 blocks from wonderful shopping at the San Lorenzo market. A lovely time was had by all!

We planned 2 days in Florence and chose Orto de medici based on a friend recommendation. The hotel is clean and relatively bigger than other hotels in the area. Its garden and breakfast areas are charming! The most amazing thing is that the hotel is a walking distance from san lorenzo market and all other attractions. Loved the charming city.... More

Room was clean & spacious with ample bathroom facilities. All staff very friendly & helpful. I regard this as very important as this is the customer facing side of any business and creates a very good impression right from the start. The breakfast gave great choices and the coffee machine was second to none. Close proximity to all amenities and... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. It has air-conditioning which was a big plus in this weather in Italy. Was very close to the Bus station, the academia gallery an the duomo. Perfect.location for us. Rooms were good sized however was not sound.proof hence could hear everyone in the hallway. Overall a decent stay for the.price.

This lovely hotel with ample continental breakfast and very clean rooms is serviced by friendly staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a bit away from the mass of tourists around the Duomo, so you can explore the local neighbourhood and get some distance, but very close to The David at the Academia Gallery.

Dear Georgia, Thanks for your review. Our hotel has a size that you just cannot assign the rooms giving a kind of priority to early bookings, but we just have to match arrival/departure of each guest. The classic room you were assigned was nevertheless spacious and with a garden view over the beautiful patio. I am sorry if you were... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
